At this point, it’s safe to assume that when a musician with a large following announces a tour, they may struggle to get concert tickets. That said, as several posts on Twitter have pointed out, Fall Out Boy fans seem to be having trouble getting tickets for their upcoming tour.
Fall Out Boy’s 2023 North American tour is set to kick off June 21 in Chicago and conclude in early August with direct support from Bring Me The Horizon. The run will see duo playshows in both pavilions and stadiums, with the Alkaline trio on several dates. New Found Glory, Four Year Strong, The Academy Is…, Royal & The Serpent, Games We Play, Daisy Grenade and Carr will also open select shows among them.
Tickets for the tour go on sale today (February 3), but some fans seem to be having trouble securing tickets. The band addressed the issue in their own tweet, but didn’t reveal what really happened.
“There was a temporary glitch in the ticketing system, it’s been fixed! It’s time to get your tickets,” wrote Fall Out Boy.
Many fans have apparently been able to get their hands on tickets since the issue was resolved, but some are still experiencing issues with queuing on Ticketmaster, and ticket prices have skyrocketed. See some of the posts below.
So far, Fall Out Boy have only booked one North American tour and a festival performance in Japan later this year, but hinted at a trek to the UK in a tweet to fans.
“I would be pissed if Fall Out Boy didn’t tour the UK,” the person wrote.
“Don’t worry, don’t be upset,” the band replied.
In the meantime, Fall Out Boy tickets are available here.
